    So I have all my music in AAC (m4a) format on my phone with "AlbumArt.jpg" in every folder. I also tried using MP3Tag on a couple, but they still don't show up. (Actually there are *two* albums that have art, and I have no idea what is different about them) I even downloaded Album Art Grabber, but when I boot it, it is just a black screen. If I move my files on to an SD card everything works fine, but I don't have an SD card big enough for all my music. Any ideas? :confused:

    Try using Cubed ('3' in superscript, market search for 'rockon') or Mixzing. Even with album art embedded I've had problems with it not showing on the stock HTC player.

    Ah, still no luck. Cubes says it can't find music on the SD card (its all on the phone memory) and won't boot up. Mixzing loads but no music is listed. It did find my videos though.

    I'm having the same problem. Most of my music doesn't have the AlbumArt.jpg, and it's all embedded in the MP3s themselves. I can't for the life of me figure out the issue at all.

    Question though, did you happen to remove the music from the SD card and then put it back on?

    Well, the thing is all of my music is on the SD Card. I had some on there, and all of the album art showed up then I proceeded to take it off due to some reason I can't think of right now, and then I put it back on, and none of the album art showed up.

    I think maybe if you format the card again, and then put music on, it should work. I don't really have an idea if that's true or not though. :(

    Hmm I'm not sure about that as for some reason my SD card has always worked.

    All my music is on my SD. I use "3" search rockon in the market and the initial time it did not get my album art but the second time I ran it it worked.

    Ok. So I think I've figured out at least my problem. I reformatted my card and put my music back on there, and the album art has been put back.

    I also had this issue with much of my album art not showing up on the phone, but ultimately I fixed. I tried just copying my iTunes library files onto my phone (or the SD card), but the only pictures that the phone recognized were ones that I applied manually to the songs, such that any pictures that iTunes found for me did not show up. My solution was a little tedious and probably not ideal for some of you, but I ended up using "Mp3tag" to apply a new picture to each album that did not previously show up. This works whether your music files are on your SD card or directly on your phone. That software is also nice since it lists the song library on your phone if you select it to, and it indicates which music files don't have album art applied to them so that you know which ones to search for.

    Anyway, this worked for me and took ~30 minutes to complete the process for my 250-song library. I also had an issue with the phone simply not recognizing some pictures once they were already applied, but just rebooting the phone and the music player a couple of times fixed this.
